Present Life explained by Past Life spread


At the Massachusetts Tarot Circle this Saturday, we developed a new past life spread. Just for giggles.

xx1xxxxxxx8x
xxxxxx5xxxxx
xx2xxxxxxx9x
xxxxxx6xxxxxx
xx3xxxxxxx10x
xxxxxx7xxxxxx
xx4xxxxxxx11x

Present Life
1 - Situation/issue in Question -OR Present Life Purpose
2 - Challenge/Obstacles in present life
3 - Talent/gift in present life
4 - Present life outcome/situational outcome -

Past Life (in relation to present life)
8 - Related Situation/issue in Past life -OR Past Life Purpose
9 - Related Challenge/Obstacles in past life
10 - Related Talent/gift in past life
11 - Past life outcome/outcome of related situation in past life

Interim
5 - Death in Past life: Circumstances surrounding the end of the first life
6- Life in between lives
7 - Intention for current life (devised during in-between life, prior to incarnating into present life)

It was a pretty interesting spread, and can be used for a general life purpose and continuity thing, or for a specific issue that you want to shed light on...like, "why am I afraid of men with facial hair?", etc.

Contrascarpe is working with his take on the spread here:

Interim: 5,6,7

Past: 8,9,10,11

Thanks

Er, just testing you Robert. *ahem*
I must have been typing from a cloud.
Plus I had to renumber a couple of times. *blush*

Corrections have been made.
Let me know if it works for you!

Hi SongDeva,

I hope I don't sound too dumb asking this, but can you explain the concept of the "Interim" a little bit for me? How should I concieve a life in between lifes?

Well, the concept depends on an assumption that an incarnation into the physical is something we do to learn and experience.

It's easiest if you assume, as least for the sake of the spread, that you are an eternal soul, who's normal plane of existence is not here, but from time to time, you incarnate into the physical.

So the theory is, you incarnated into a past life, then "died" and went back home....while there, you reviewed that life, lived, and planned on your next 'life'....the current one your are living now.

Does this make sense?

However, it could just as easily work for one time period in this life and the transition into another, if those concepts don't resonate with you.
